Why Choose A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon and be confident you are in the care of a highly-trained surgeon you can trust.
During your skin cancer removal surgery recovery, incision sites may be sore, red or drain small amounts of fluid.
Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon specific questions about what you can expect during your individual recovery period.
Healing will continue for many weeks or months as incision lines continue to improve.
It may take a year or more following a given procedure for incision lines to refine and fade to some degree. In some cases, secondary procedures may be required to complete or refine your reconstruction.
Sun exposure to healing wounds may result in irregular pigmentation and scars that can become raised, red or dark. Sun exposure may increase the risk of the development of skin cancer in another region of your body.
